Watch the powerful video above for a stunning and indelible message that stands in defiance of hate.
It happened yesterday:
The head of the Air Force Academy stood all his 4,000 cadets at attention Thursday to deliver a message on racial slurs found written on message boards at the academy’s preparatory school.
Chins in and chests out, the cadets were flanked by 1,500 officers, sergeants, athletic coaches and civilian professors inside cavernous Mitchell Hall. Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria told them to take out their smartphones and record his words. “If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect, then get out,” he said.
As Axios reported: Be smart: If you have the privilege of leading, you know what to do. Lt. Gen. Silveria did it, and no one will ever forget it.
